How much did climate change contribute to the damage inflicted by Superstorm Sandy? According to new study by researchers from Climate Central, Rutgers University, and Stevens Institute of Technology, the answer is approximately 13% ($8.1 billion) of the $62.7 billion in losses incurred by New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Join Dr. Daniel Gilford, Climate Scientist at Climate Central, Inc.; Dr. Robert Kopp, Professor and Director, Rutgers Institute of Earth, Ocean & Atmospheric Sciences; and Mr. Robert Freudenberg, Vice President, Energy & Environment, Regional Plan Association, as they discuss how they arrived at this answer and the relationship between human-caused warming and losses during Superstorm Sandy.

The NJ Climate Change Resource Center (NJCCRC) is excited to offer 3 additional free webinars focusing on the latest information on climate change impacts, decision-making, and resilience within the Garden State.
